Trump campaign launches 'You ain't black' t-shirt after massive Biden gaffe

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Friday committed another massively insulting gaffe when he told “The Breakfast Club” morning show in New York City that African Americans who vote for President Donald Trump “ain’t black.”
And in doing so, gave his GOP rival a fantastic fundraising idea.
Within hours of Biden’s gaffe, the 2020 Trump campaign announced a “You Ain’t Black” t-shirt that is certain to garner sales across many demographics.
“If you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told show host Charlamagne Tha God during the closing moments of his appearance.
“It don’t have nothing to do with Trump — it has to do with the fact that I want something for my community,” the host said.
Needless to say, the sleight was taken as highly offensive by many blacks, including elected leaders like Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who noted he wasn’t surprised by Biden’s comments because Democrats have taken black voters for granted for decades.
“That is the most arrogant, condescending comment I've heard in a very long time,” Scott told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney. “He's saying that 1.3 million African-Americans, that you’re not Black? Who in the heck does he think he is?”
Others noted that the always-protective ‘mainstream media’ was AWOL on the gaffe including the head of the Republican National Committee, Rona McDaniel.
She’s right, of course. Remember when ‘the media’ pounced on President Trump for comments he made regarding the Charlottesville. Va., violence? He never even said that there are “good people on both sides” but the media claimed he did and has been running with it ever since.
For the record, Biden has apologized for his remark, saying he “shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.” But no matter; most Democrats and their media allies had already circled the wagons around him.
That includes former ESPN commentator Jemele Hill, now a Left-wing extremist writer for The Atlantic. Though she’s accused President Trump of being a “white supremacist” in the past, sans any evidence, she had no such condemnation for Biden.
“The issue wasn’t what Joe Biden said, because it was accurate,” tweeted Hill. “The issue was that it came from Biden. It also was clearly a joke that didn’t land. But I’m wondering where all this outrage was yesterday when y’all president declared his public devotion to a Nazi sympathizer.”
She added that she had no “problem” with what Biden said because she claims to know what his point of reference was (again, without offering any evidence).
In any event, what matters now, at least to the Trump camp, is selling some t-shirts for the cause. And they have Biden to thank for it.
